(Debuted at #5 in Children’s Illustrated) We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen: “Two turtles have found a hat. The hat looks good on both of them. But there are two turtles. And there is only one hat…” (October 2016)

(Debuted at #15 in Hardcover Fiction) Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood: “Felix is at the top of his game as Artistic Director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival.

(Debuted at #15 in Hardcover Nonfiction) A Life in Parts by Bryan Cranston: “Now, in his riveting memoir, Cranston maps his zigzag journey from abandoned son to beloved star by recalling the many odd parts he’s played in real life—paperboy, farmhand, security guard, dating consultant, murder suspect, dock loader, lover, husband, father. Cranston also chronicles his evolution on camera, from soap opera player trying to master the rules of show business to legendary character actor turning in classic performances as Seinfeld dentist Tim Whatley, ‘a sadist with newer magazines,’ and Malcolm in the Middle dad Hal Wilkerson, a lovable bumbler in tighty-whities.” (October 2016)
